Nigeria’s President – Goodluck Jonathan –  has commiserated with Edo state Governor, Adams Oshiomhole and the people of Edo State on the death of prominent Nigerian administrator and elder statesman, Chief Tayo Akpata, who died yesterday (October 13); while extending sincere condolences to his widow – Chief (Mrs.) Olabisi Akpata.
